I have the set for 3 weeks now. Let me tell you guys what to expect. i think the screen use a lot of the battery. the battery turn half in like 2-3 hours. I AM NOT JOKING. i do play with it like few minutes every 30 minutes.
In comparison to a BOLD 9700 that i have been using the battery is 1/3 of the bold lifespan.
the OS does lag. We need to give them some time. i think the OS is still undergoing some potential improvement. many app will coz the phone to hang. It may be because of he new OS. ( I suspect )
The app memory is only 512mb. that is STUPID. the ringer volume is not too great. bit soft.
it is a very nice looking phone and it does need some time. the language support is still very limited. I think only 2 language. No chinese yet.
So no rush guys!!! the once that can't wait will need to bear with it for a while. I am sure it will be a good phone to have in 6 months time.

jade, 20 Sep 2010it is being released on pre order from today with vodafoneits been on pre order with voda for over a week
Bought one last week. Being a Blackberry user before I personally find that BB Torch is a fantastic phone especially for those 50+ where you can see better as the frame is bigger compared to 9700 or 9000.
It has the choice of touch screen or qwartery button that BB users are familiar with. For professional who frequently use most of the phone for calling, smses and emails and once a while media this Torch is a great phone. It's camera of 5 megapixel produces sharp pictures.
One drawback is if you connects to bluetooth , the battery runs out fast. RIM need to improvised the battery usage time.
Overall this phone is great for professional and those who are 50+ as this Torch is no longer strain to eyes sight.
